Default 305 HP Ford Focus RS Coming To America?

snap

Quote:


Automotive News reports Ford's contemplating bringing the Euro-only Ford Focus RS (along with the torque-spin-gasmic 305 HP turbocharged 2.5-liter five-banger Volvo powerplant) stateside. Fiesta Movement? Ha. More like a Focus Movement — in our pants!

Automotive News claims Hermann Salenbauch, Ford's advanced product creation and global performance director told them Ford is looking for "feedback from the media and customers...how much do they like it? Is it really what they want? We are pretty confident that it is." We know we feel pretty confident it is. So say we all? If we do, say your piece right now — show Ford the positive feedback they so desperately desire.

I wonder why ford is pushing that color so much? I wonder if it is because they want to be environmentally "green" friendly? I don't think it looks THAT bad, but I would much rather see a nice darker blue or red.

Here's some "Artistic License" I took on the car concerning what other colors could look like...

We will never get a focus worth owning I don't think. Just like we never got an Escort worth owning

"If you can achieve the performance you want without steering disturbance, then front-wheel-drive is a better performance car – lighter and with a more precise, linear steering response than AWD. With the work of our advanced research team in Aachen, we were able to achieve this and deliver something genuinely different.”

From what I understand the new RS will basically be the same as a C30 R Design. Inline 5? That sounds like Volvo to me. Maybe Bru can back that up? Hrm, I failed to read the line about the "Volvo 5 banger".
